Back he goes

Catch, release, catch again: Michael Skakel leaps from the watwater and back into the long arms of the law

Catch, release, catch again: Michael Skakel leaps from the watwater and back into the long arms of the law

Ct Supremes rule, 4-3, that Mickey Sherman did not botch Michael Skakel's defense.

I still think the state, the jury and the Moxleys were satisfied that a Skakel was punished for the murder and didn't care which one. The parents' loss was terrible, but is the real murderer going back to jail for the next decade? We'll probably never know. What we do know is that Sherman should have used brother Tommy's behavior that night to sow reasonable doubt, and he failed to do so.
